Coronary artery disease evaluation in rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis causes disabling joint changes, but also leads to other ailments (co-morbidities), of which heart disease is the most important and risky. The reason for this excess risk is thought to be widespread inflammation in the body. Newer treatments for rheumatoid arthritis effectively suppress inflammation in the joints, and it has been speculated that these treatments may also suppress the co-morbidities, particularly reducing the risk of heart disease. The team will use magnetic resonance imaging to detect early signs of heart disease in patients with a new diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis and to test whether these changes are reversible with effective treatments of inflammation called biologics. If such effects can be shown, the management of rheumatoid arthritis could be changed to introduce biologics.
